Wait, No Hurry, LIVST004 (Reissue of NEMI 0396)

We are elated to announce our first release post-Strut, Grotto’s second album, Wait, No Hurry… Its a mature afro-funk classic of the rarest calibre (I don’t own a copy, I had to get one from Uchenna Ikonne to create a master copy)..

This amazing album was made by some of the best musicians on the 70s Lagos live circuit.

Bass Guitar – S. Benson* (tracks: A1, B3), T. Mason Jnr. (tracks: A2 to B2)
Chorus – E. Bassey* (tracks: B3), M. Amenechi* (tracks: B3), T. Mason Jnr. (tracks: B3)
Drums – E. Bassey*

Toma Mason Jnr had evolved into a very capable and interesting bass player, highly sought after and rated. The rest of the band had a developed a chemistry from playing live on a steady basis. This can be heard clearly on the funk classics like Wait… No Hurry, Who Gives A Damn, Bad City Girl and Freestyle.

Its a very balanced album which provides a great listening experience. Enjoy!
